Albums of the Year 2020

Postby Tin Bird on Thu Dec 31, 2020 10:43 am

Sea Wolf - Through a Dark Wood
Sufjan Stevens/Lowell Brams - Aporia
Hiroshi Yoshimura - Green (reissue)
Mary Lattimore - Silver Ladders
Kate NV - Room for the Moon
Jack Penate - After You (came out in late November 2019, but I 've decided to include here since it did not make the list last year)
Pan American - A Son (again, came out late September 2019, but was one of my favorite albums of 2020)

Let's hope 2021 is better all around...

I have to poke through those! I'm still in my 80's box as of yet :lol: I can't comment on anything recent :/

I’m hoping and praying that 2021 will be a return to normalcy myself.

Amazingly diverse list baht! I have the Eno album. For some reason it did not grab me as much as so many of his other albums that I love. Perhaps I need to go back and give it another listen or two. Was the Luminous record from the same sessions w his brother?

I'm not certain if all of the songs on Luminous were recorded during the same sessions as Mixing Colours. I did read that Pewter had been included on the Japanese version of Mixing Colours, so I assume that song was recorded around the same time.

Thanks for your lists! Here's mine:

Eivind Aarset & Jan Bang – Snow Catches On Her Eyelashes
The Academy Of Sun – The Quiet Earth
anrimeal – Could Divine
The First Minute Of A New Day – The First Minute Of A New Day
iLiKETRAiNS – Kompromat
Daniel O'Sullivan - Electric Maya: Dream Flotsam & Astral Hinterlands
The Silver Field – Sing High! Sing Low!
Teleplasmiste – To Kiss Earth Goodbye
Tunng - Tunng Presents... Dead Club
Andrew Wasylyk - Fugitive Light and Themes of Consolation

In stark contrast to the awful suffering globally, this was an incredible year for new music. I think all of these are available for listening and purchasing on Bandcamp (and bless 'em for their Bandcamp Fridays.)
